Obesity not caused by lack of willpower – psychologists

24 September 2019 – BBC News

A report by top psychologists says that shaming people for obesity only makes them feel worse about themselves.

The report is calling for changes in the language to reduce stigma and call them “a person with obesity” rather than an “obese person”.  It also says health professionals should be trained to talk about weight loss in a more supportive way.
